USER REVIEWS

Comment from: Dinny 55-64 Female 5 to less than 10 years Patient Published: May 21

This medication ruined my life for 6 years. Very costly trying to find out what was wrong. 24 hrs after stopping Azor because insurance considered it not covered and I had to change meds, I felt . I could walk more easily and the coughing and wheezing stopped.

I began taking Azor after experiencing severe side effects with Lisinopril. In the beginning, Azor worked wonderfully! Very little side effects. After a year of using this drug it became my worst nightmare. I began experiencing severe side effects. Irregular heart rhythm, itching, tingling, nausea, anxiety, the list goes on! I thought I was going to have a stroke or heart attack everyday for the last two years! Side effects were so severe, I spent the past two years doing very expensive and time-consuming test only to be told the doctors couldn't find anything wrong with my heart, my liver, gallbladder etc! Tons of test to find out the Azor was the cause of all of my medical issues. I had changed insurance companies and they would not pay for the Azor. So I was given a prescription for amlodipine and Benicar. I couldn't afford the Benicar so in the mean time I only had the Amlodopine to take. While I waited for my doctor to get back to me, after going a week without the olmesartan, I realized I hadn't had any heart palpitations and I felt like my old self again. That's when I realized it was the Azor! After two very scary years of E.R. visits, being told I had anxiety, and was paranoid, I find out that the Azor was the problem the whole time! Please do your research. I am sure had I not stopped this medication, it would have resulted in a worse outcome for me! I thank God that I was forced to go without it. Otherwise I may have never discovered what it was doing to me.

I have been taking this medication for 3-4 years with no discernible side effects. My blood pressure has gone from 200/100 down to 118/68 consistently. I am very happy with the results. I had the option of using a Beta Blocker but did not want a med that interferes with my heart rhythm.

After 3 years I started to get uncontrollable reflux and occasional diarhea. MDs didn't know what caused it. 6 months later diarhea was severe and I started to loose weight. 3 months later hospitalized with renal failure, elevated liver enzymes, dehydration, low BP. Colonoscopy severe spruelike enteropathy (celiac disease)did not respond to gluten free and no DNA or antibodies to confirm gluten intolerance. Sent to NYC hospital they found it was due to Azor 5/40 Now 6 months later still battling vitamin and mineral deficiencies, loss of hair, skin rashes, weak nails, inflamed vocal chords due to acid reflux which is now under control. The MD who prescribed it told me he knew of the "side effect" which nearly killed me, but he never connected it to my symptoms, of which he was made aware early on..He is no longer my cardiologist!d

Take 5-40 dosage. After a few weeks, BP dropped to 99/64....too low. Now take 1/2 pill every morning. BP around 112 to 120 over 70 to 76, sometimes a little higher. No apparent side effects.

AZOR causes me to be sun sensitive even when using sun screen, turned my skin to a darker color and I have burning of my skin. I will no longer take this medication.

I was prescibed 5-40 MG daily but experienced low BP so had to cut the tablet in half. It has lowered my BP to a consistent 120/80 and I'm very pleased. I haven't had any of the side effects mentioned in other reviews. Tried several different medications before my doctor recommended this and I'm very pleased with it.
